Advanced Ethical Decision Making

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Register by October 31, 2018

APEGA professionals occupy a very important position in relation to public trust. There is an assumption of integrity and the application of the highest ethical principles and standards in the protection of both the public and the profession itself. This is not a simple or easy task. It requires sensitivity to ethical issues and the ability to use ethical judgment. It also requires the motivation to do the right thing. Most difficult of all is the commitment to take action that requires courage, persistence, overcoming obstacles, influencing skills and personal confidence. In "Advanced Ethical Decision-making" you will consider each one of these four requirements and apply your thinking to real dilemmas that professionals like you face.

When you participate in this session, you will:

  • Identify ethical dilemmas facing APEGA professionals and discuss the personal and organizational obstacles associated with taking ethical action.
  • Review the four-step model of ethical action developed by James Rest and the challenges inherent in each step:
    • Moral Sensitivity
    • Moral Judgment
    • Moral Motivation
    • Moral Character (action)
  • Apply a comprehensive model for ethical decision- making to ethical dilemmas that include action planning and influence.
  • Develop a plan to address both personal and organizational challenges associated with ethical decision-making and action-taking.
